Racketball is the UK's fastest growing sport!
Racketball is played on a squash court and similar to Squash. A bigger bouncier ball and a shorter racket make this sport easier to pick up.
Overall this makes the game much easier to pick up than many other sports like Squash or Tennis. Racketball is said to be, "Easy to learn yet difficult to master" which is one of the key factors in the sport's recent growth.
Racketball Mix-in is every Friday 18.15 - 19.30
Our floodlit 5-a-side football pitch has a state of the art rubber granular surface and allows adults and children to enjoy their football without getting muddy or suffering from injuries so often caused from playing on hard artificial surfaces like AstroTurf.
